Sunday, 14 April 2013 follows its UK Success with Global Launch

Thanks to a successful UK  launch in 2012 and a growing demand from petrolheads around the world, is coming to a street near you – no matter where you are! is a clever website that lets car and bike fans connect in the real world and share online, with the innovative use of customised stickers displayed on users’ rides. An online first, has already been dubbed ‘Facebook for cars’ by a rapidly-growing audience of petrolheads, with photo and video albums, messaging, chat, news and blogs all available now – and a host of other features in the pipeline.

The monkeyplate concept is simple. Anyone can sign up to the website for free, and create an online profile stuffed full of whatever photos, videos and other information they want to share. Users then put a customised monkeyplate sticker on their ride. This tells the world outside how to find their profile online simply by entering the unique username from the sticker on the monkeyplate website.

And now the same monkeyplate goodness is available to users around the world.

In addition to its primary role as a device for real-world sharing and self-promotion, the monkeyplate website now offers a range of social functions for users online, including online chat and monkeyplateLIVE - a unique live feed from users worldwide.

Users can also open their profiles to the public so anyone can look them up online – whether it’s on the motorway, at an event or on pit lane.

Customised monkeyplate stickers can be ordered directly from the monkeyplate website in a range of colours and styles, and are now delivered to over 20 countries worldwide. Alternatively users can buy stickers from their local vehicle graphics shop, or scribble or spray a monkeyplate on their car – as long as the monkeyplate brand and individual’s username are visible it’s all good… was founded in January 2011 by motoring journalist Christian Thomas. “We wanted to make a direct link between enthusiasts, their rides and the internet. With monkeyplate, the machine becomes a mobile billboard for whatever the user wants to show online. News, event pictures, blogs, track day videos… anything. It works 24/7, all year, anywhere.”

Whether you are a petrolhead, grease monkey or just a social animal, is now the way to tell the human race how to find you online, anytime, anywhere in the world.
